Rescue struggling readers aged 9–13
Read Write Inc. Fresh Start is a catch-up and intervention programme with proven results, for 9 to 13-year-olds still learning to read. It offers a simple but powerful solution to accelerate reading progress in just 25 minutes a day.
Developed by Ruth Miskin, Fresh Start follows the same sound progression as the DfE validated SSP RWI Phonics, and is the KS2/KS3 element of the renowned phonics programme.
Students are taught at their challenge point, so they learn to read accurately and fluently. They will also develop good comprehension, spelling and punctuation skills through targeted activites.
Resources are age-appropriate, matched to students' increasing knowledge of phonics, and finely levelled to accelerate progress.
High-quality training, provided by Ruth Miskin Training, supports teachers, teaching assistants or tutors to deliver Fresh Start in a primary- or secondary-school setting.
